Due to unexpected medical issues involving frontman Steven Tyler, Aerosmith has been forced to cancel the final four dates of its South American tour. Tyler is seeking immediate care for what appears to be a seizure, and has been advised by doctors that he cannot travel or perform at this time.
“To everybody in South America….Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Mexico… I’m very sorry and feel like I’ve let you down… I won’t be able to continue the last four shows of this tour. I flew back to the US on doctor’s orders [September 25th] after the show in São Paulo,” the singer writes.
“Please not to worry… I am not in a life threatening condition, but I need to deal with this right away, and get some rest and medical care immediately in order to sustain and maintain my future performances… I promise I’ll be back…unfortunately, health does not wait and it’s something even I can’t schedule around our shows… As they say, ‘We humans make plans, and God laughs…’ I love you all and will be back with you soon…”
Tyler is expected to make a full recovery and is expected to be back on his feet soon after proper rest and treatment.
